Maybe Kandori turned down the fight? She sounded pretty pissed and it wouldn't be out of the question. Also I don't think it's fair to say that Rizin just completely ignored spectacle fights when they did book Gabi vs. Kandori, CroCop vs. TK, and Gomi vs. Yachi. Maybe they could have done more, but it's not like they forgot that angle completely. Like you said I hope they don't do anything reckless, nor do I think it's nesessary. IMO almost everything could have been solved by just replacing TK with a bigger name and also having the Gabi Garcia fight go through. Maybe add 1 other freak fight (ex. Bob Sapp) if you want to play it safe. But other than that you're good.
